Coronavirus Guidance

School closure due to coronavirus


Dear Parents/Carers,


The outbreak of coronavirus (COVID-19) has now been classified as a pandemic and the number of confirmed cases in the UK has risen in recent weeks. We take the health and safety of our school community very seriously, and the decision has been made to close the school to minimise the further spread of coronavirus. 


We will keep you informed of any developments via school website, www.berwickhills.org.uk , Facebook and text message, including details about our re-opening date. Please make sure you have provided your current contact details to the school office to ensure you receive our correspondence.


Educational arrangements


To reduce the closure’s effect on pupils’ education, we have prepared alternative work provisions for pupils to complete at home. A work pack is enclosed for your child to complete at home. In addition there are online websites that are used in school, where your child can continue to complete their work. Where appropriate, letters have been included with login details for your child within this pack. Links to these websites can be found on the letter or via the school website.


Thank you for your cooperation in ensuring the safety of our pupils and staff. If you need to contact the school for any reason during this period of closure, you can do so by emailing us at berwickhillsschool@mcschools.org.uk.  We will continue to keep you informed during the closure and update you with any new information about our re-opening date.


Yours sincerely


Miss T Smith

Head Teacher
